What makes this program stand out? Nucamp is an affordable and location-flexible answer to the rise in technical training programs. With tuition priced as low as $380 in New York City and cheaper elsewhere, Nucamp provides an opportunity for aspiring technologists to engage in coursework at a low risk when compared with immsersive bootcamps that can cost upwards of $20,000. “We want to help people who are left out of the digital economy find opportunity,” said Karim El Naggar, founder and CEO of Nucamp. “We operate with a social mission.”

Nucamp is a hybrid program with bootcamp offerings for beginners and advanced coders. The beginner bootcamp is a 4-week-long course teaching web development fundamentals. This course teaches the building blocks of designing for the web including HTML, CSS, and Javascript. The advanced bootcamps include a 17-week-long front-end web and mobile development course and a 22-week-long full stack web and mobile development course.

What do participants need to succeed? Participants need the support of friends and family to make the 4–22 week commitment, as they are expected to spend 8–14 hours each week watching online lectures and completing homework exercises independently, without the structure of a fully on-site course.
